RULE 034.00.99-007. Amendment to Section C of the CZDC Ordinance and addition to the definition of "Minor Modifications"

AMENDMENT TO SECTION C OF THE CZDC ORDINANCE

In cases where more than 75% of the historic true divided light windows of one design in a structure are totally destroyed due to an act outside the owner's control, the CZDC staff may issue a Certificate of Appropriateness for the replacement of such windows with windows that are substantially identical to the historic windows in the configuration of the panes, the dimensions of all defining elements such as panes, muntin, mullions, and sash, the reveal, and sash and glazing materials. This includes the approval of double glazed simulated divided light windows which include a paintable fixed exterior applied muntin and a spacer bar dividing the double panes of glass if such windows appear substantially identical to the historic windows from the public way. The determination of whether a window appears substantially identical to the original shall be made by the CZDC staff after an inspection of the proposed replacement windows. In no case shall a new window be considered Substantially identical if the linear dimensions of any element visible from the public right of way vary by more than 10% from the dimensions of the historic window it is to replace. For the purposes of this section, "an act outside the owner's control" shall not include normal deterioration due to weathering, insect infestation, or other similar maintenance issue.

ADDITION TO THE DEFINITION OF MINOR MODIFICATIONS

" Like-kind replacements" shall be defined as the replacement of an architectural feature with a feature identical to the original in materials, design, and functionality. For instance, replacement of damaged historic true divided light wood casement windows with new true divided light wood casement windows identical to the historic windows in the configuration of the panes, the dimensions of all defining elements such as panes, muntin, mullions, and sash, the reveal, and the materials.
